ANNANDALE, Va. (AP) - Authorities have charged a 67-year-old Virginia man with fatally shooting his daughter and her husband during an argument at their home.

Fairfax County Police said in a statement that Hiep Van Le argued with his son-in-law, 45-year-old Dang Ngo, on Wednesday. As the fight escalated, Le’s 40-year-old daughter, Sophia, got involved. Police say Hiep Van Le displayed a gun and shot them.

Another family member called police. When officers arrived, police say they found Ngo dead outside and Sophia Le critically wounded inside. Sophia Le was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

Police arrested Hiep Van Le at the home. He’s charged with two counts of second-degree murder. It couldn’t immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.

Police say a teenage boy and two young girls at the home were not injured.
